Campagna T-Rex is a two-seater, three-wheeled hybrid of motorcycle and convertible. The motorcycle was designed and built in 1994 by the Canadian company Campagna. The body design was developed by Paul Deutschman, who worked as a designer in Rover and Jaguar.
T-Rex inherited Kawasaki\'s pipe frame, sequential gearbox and the whole rear part of the vehicle. The massive rear wheel (tire with a dimension of 285/45 is stretched on alloy wheel (width of 10 and a diameter of 17 inches)) is sandwiched between two exhaust pipes. The guide system of wheel suspension with double wishbone \"rockers\", two damper struts and open chain do not fundamentally differ from the same on motorcycles.
Cab of the open saloon reminds real convertible. The vehicle has a sports steering wheel (similar to those used in race cars F1), three-point safety belts, protective arc and a scattering of dials on the dashboard. Pedals and backrests of sport seats are adjustable. Multi-layer floor and aerodynamic panel are made of carbon fiber. Side steel walls protect driver and passenger with pannels of fiberglass. Pedals are regulated not only in distance, but also in height. Even person with height of 195 cm can comfortably accommodate in the sports seat.
The basic model of Campagna is T-Rex V13R that is equipped with a 122-horsepower engine Harley-Davidson. 14R and 14RR versions are fitted with Kawasaki engines with capacity of 197 hp. The maximum speed approaches 160 mph (256 km / h) and the machine accelerates from 0 to 60 miles per hour (96 km / h) in less than 4 seconds. Tricycle is equipped with a six-speed transmission with reverse.
Length of T-Rex is 3505 mm, width is 1981, height is 1067; wheelbase is 2286 mm. Front perforated discs have a diameter of 279, 4 mm and the rear one is 254-mm. The latest version of T-Rex will get the control electronics BMW, which changes the settings of power unit, depending on road conditions. Also the novelty will receive sound system Alpin with functions of listening to the Internet radio stations and to music from mobile devices via Bluetooth.
